“Good sushi, bad drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

The sushi was incredibly fresh, we had both sashimi and some rolls. If you can get there when they have their happy hour sushi the prices are decent otherwise for the amount of fish that actually shows up on your plate it would be overpriced.

We ordered their lychee martinis which were not even drinkable, overly sweet, and our server did allow us to exchange our 8 dollar martinis for 4 dollar beers with no effort lol. The server also said all of their drinks are overly sweet.

Can't say I would crave going back to this place but the sushi was definitely delicious.

“Good Sushi-lively place on a Friday night.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We went there on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We asked for a sushi restaurant in downtown area that was not too expensive. Between the 3 of us we had (2) green tea) (1) Sierra Mist, lobster spring roll, Uchi no salad, vegetable tempura, a crunchy calamari sushi roll and a shrim tempura sushi roll. Total check before tip was $50. We were there on a Fri. night, it was very crowded and loud. A lot of younger people 20-30 age. We did not have reservations and only had to wait about 15 minutes. We would go back, but would probably prefer a weeknight to avoid the crowds. Obviously a popular place

“Very good sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

Although it was tough finding a parking space it was totally worth it. My husband wasn't a sushi fan when we went in but at the end he loved it! The mochi is awesome!

“Excellent food but very loud and busy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

This is the type of bar/restaurant college kids LOVE! It is high-energy with very loud, ecclectic music. The decor is very modern and unique. The lighting is dim, giving it more of a bar feel than a restaurant feel, but the food is really good. Go alone and sit at the sushi bar if you are not getting drunk with a bunch of friends to scream-talk with all night. Eeek!

“Sake n sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

I have eaten at RA several times and have not been disappointed ever! The service is always good and they have a great sushi selection! It's a great spot for date night or a night out with friends! The servers there will let you know their specialty rolls too..even if they aren't on the menu!
